Our Higher Education courses can be paid by either a loan from the Student Loans Company, by instalments with Flex Ed. or by paying the full cost upfront.

Student Loans

Our higher education courses are eligible for a loan from the Student Loans Company to cover the costs of the tuition fees. For students who apply for a student loan between 6th April 2019 to 5th April 2020, the loan is repayable once your annual salary rises above the minimum threshold of £25,725. For example, and as shown in the table below, if you were earning £30,000 per year then the repayment on a tuition fee loan will be approximately £32 per month.
